Enable automatic updates every 30 seconds? YES NO
Full-time: Welsh 13, Grenoble 27. The Exiles were well beaten
Welsh 13, Grenoble 27 (Taukeiaho try)
Welsh 13 (Denbee try, Davies con), Grenoble 22
A private scuffle off-the-ball provides some entertainment, but referee takes no action other than awarding Grenoble a penalty
Grenoble have rung the changes. Can Welsh take advantage?
Welsh having to defend at full stretch now. This could be a tiring half for them
Welsh 6, Grenoble 22 (Ninard try, Courrent con)
Second-half underway. Welsh need a big improvement
Half-time: Welsh 6, Grenoble 15. Grenoble good value for their lead and Welsh look miles away from a bonus-point win
Welsh 6 (Davies pen), Grenoble 15
Welsh 3 (Davies pen), Grenoble 15
Welsh 0, Grenoble 15 (Bouchet try). Ooh la la!
The game is fairly open so far, but Welsh need to play more in the Grenoble half
Welsh 0, Grenoble 10 (Bouchet try, Courrent con)
Welsh 0 (Davies missed pen), Grenoble 3
Welsh 0, Grenoble 3 (Courrent pen)
Grenoble have made lively start and earn a penalty
And they're off
Welsh's 'victory' in Grenoble means they still have an outside chance of topping Pool 5 and reaching the quarter-finals. But realistically, they need five-point wins in their next two matches to have any chance of overhauling table-toppers Stade Francais.
Kick-off is at 1.30pm, maybe to allow our French visitors a spot of Christmas shopping afterwards?
London Welsh are looking to build on the unexpected boost they received this week when they were awarded a bonus-point victory instead of defeat in Grenoble. The French side won last Friday's match 20-9, but were found to have fielded an ineligible player, so Welsh picked up a 28-0 win instead.
